This book was slow and quite uninteresting for the first 100+ pages. He wanders around, not able to remember things, and keeps bumping into siblings he doesn't know.

The rest of it was more intriguing. The plot picked up and things started to make sense. The magical system is quite unique, as are his characters, who almost take pride in betraying each other. The plot seems disjointed, there's an almost realistic feeling that you never know what is going to happen next, but whatever it is, it won't be good.
